Interested in learning more about cobblestone buildings and this unique style of masonry? Then our resource center is just the place for you!
The resource center, house in the historic Brick House (c. 1836), is available for use by students of all ages. This collection contains documentation on cobblestone buildings constructed in North America. Information spans the 19th century soft-lime mortar construction to 20th century preservation and restoration. Our cobblestone house files contain information on the construction methods, the people who constructed the buildings, and the families that lived within them.
We also have a collection of resources relating to the history of Western New York and the Great Lakes Region of the U.S. and Canada. The resource center also houses the archives for the Cobblestone Society & Museum, containing documentation of the society’s history, buildings, and collections.
